This recipe was sent to me by my dear friend, Jeanette and may I just say that today was a better day all because I made this and ate it?

If you’re in need of a quick but extremely tasty chocolate fix, this little gem will fix you right up, I promise. (I also made a chocolate sauce to drizzle on top, because I’m PMSing like that)

Minute Chocolate Mug Cake

1 Coffee Mug

4 tablespoons flour (that’s plain flour, not self-rising)

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons baking cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla , and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

Note: this is not a cake that stores well – it becomes rather chewy if left out more than 15 minutes or so, so eat it while it’s hot!

    Wow, it’s like you can read my mind! I’ve been wandering around the house for the past week wanting something chocolate, but not willing to put in a lot of work baking. I can’t wait to give it a try!

    I love that it’s a recipe for ONE. The ultimate in decadence – chocolate with a blatant disregard for the notion of sharing. AS IF! Hee hee hee. Hugs.

    Hey, think of it as portion controlled chocolate cake. 🙂 Any idea how many weight watchers points this would be? 😉

    This would be a great teacher gift. Put all the dry ingrediants together with a mug and the recipe. Too cute. I wanted to try it, but I just entered the recipe into WW and it came up as over 8 points, which I just can’t fit in. Darn! I am definitely gonna give it as gifts though. Thans for sharing such a fun recipe.
